Wine Spectator’s 2017 Awards have been announced, and The Bistro on the Boulevard is proud to accept their “Award of Excellence”. This selective annual award is presented to restaurants offering a wine list that meets their international standards of quality and variety.
The Bistro on the Boulevard is the only restaurant in Berrien County to be recognized with this award. 2,335 restaurants (worldwide) received the 2017 award. Currently, the wine list at the restaurant hosts over 150 bottles, ranging in price from $20-$300, and representing international wine culture.
The “Award of Excellence” at the Bistro on the Boulevard represents the work of Mâitré d’ Samer Badreddine, who curates the extensive wine list. Mr. Badreddine says-
“Receiving the Wine Spectator “Award of Excellence” places the Bistro on the Boulevard in a new caliber of restaurants, and puts us on the map. A labor of love, our wine list represents years of research and development. We are thrilled to be recognized by Wine Spectator, and are very excited about the potential this award holds for us and for Southwest Michigan.”
Prior to this year, the Bistro on the Boulevard had received the 2012 “Award of Excellence”.
